Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace sits in the borough of Richmond upon Thames. Building of the palace began in 1515 for Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, a favourite of King Henry VIII.  Wolsey, Archbishop of York, Chief Minister took over the site of Hampton Court Palace in 1514 and began building in February 1515. Over the next seven years, he spent lavishly to build the finest palace in England at Hampton Court. Wolsey was only to enjoy his palace for a few years. In 1528, knowing that his enemies and the King were engineering his downfall, he passed the palace to the King as a gift and died two years later in 1530.

Hampton Court was opened to the public in the reign of Queen Victoria. Today the palace and its beautiful grounds are a major tourist attraction, cared for by an independent charity, Historic Royal Palaces, which continues to display a large number of works of art from the Royal Collection. Apart from the Palace itself and extensively landscaped gardens, other points of interest for visitors include the celebrated maze, and the huge grape vine, the largest in the world as of 2005. The palace’s Home Park is the site of the annual Hampton Court Palace Festival and Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. In 2015 Hampton Court celebrated its 500th Anniversary and continues to provide a unique window on British history, enjoyed by over 900,000 visitors in 2017.
